Etymology[edit]

Precise etymology unknown. Possibly derived from bărbat (man). Other theories suggest, due to its original meaning as a servant or working boy, from Vulgar Latin *bailliator or *bailiatus, from *bailliare, from *bailare, from Latin baiulāre (carry a burden), from a derivative of the verb băia (compare îmbăia), possibly related to the aforementioned verb, or from Medieval Latin bailetus, from baietus (page, serving boy).[1]
